    Interest Rates in Argentina??

    Santander Rio offered me a line of credit and I think the rate was 42%. Of course I am not interested. But inflation is high. I wonder what the illegal loan sharks charge.

    30+ Professional Gay Scene??

    I have had lots of fun as well at Flux, they start early and the employees are friendly, crowd is limited though, KM 0 can be fun after 2 AM or 3 AM, no shows that late, and crowds are larger. More fun, than earlier. Yet harder for me to stay awake that late.
